  1Source- What is your favorite movie and why?

BP - I have a lot of favorite movies, but I'd say Dumb and Dumber. I think it has some of the greatest one-liners. For example, "You've had an extra pair of gloves this whole time? Yeah, we're in the Rockies." All sorts of lines like that that don't make a lot of sense, but they are very funny to me.

1Source - Where would you go for your fantasy fishing trip?

BP - Lake Biwa in Japan. I'd throw giant swimbaits and try for one of those freak largemouth.

1Source - Who is your favorite professional wrestler?

BP - I have never watched professional wrestling. It's not real wrestling. I'm not saying the wrestlers aren't athletes or that they don't get hurt, it's just not a sport.

1Source - What was your worst lodging experience on the road?

BP - It was in 2010. Me and a buddy had been sleeping in a truck. We were heading to the TBF Nationals in Tennessee. My boat was rear-ended. So, we had no boat to practice in for the event. We had very little money. We decided to stay in a cheap motel. The people running the place barely spoke English. I also think the majority of people at the motel lived there full-time. I'm pretty sure there was a lot of drug trafficking going on. We had no money and no other choice. That was the worst.

1Source - What do you want to be when you grow up?

BP - Better than Kevin VanDam!

Dave Landahl

Sport fishing industry veteran Dave Landahl has fished from coast-to-coast and chased a multitude of fish species during his 40-plus years of angling.

Along with all of this, Landahl was a tournament angler and a fishing guide.

His background as a representative for the sport fishing community covers multiple decades. Landahl has spent a large portion of that time promoting and writing for, OutdoorsFIRST Media, BassFan, FLW Outdoors and a host of other outdoor related media. He has also promoted recreational fishing and boating throughout the USA, previously working for the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and promoting their Anglers’ Legacy campaign and Take Me Fishing.

Landahl was the host, along with his wife Kristin, of a popular Chicago area radio show The Fishing Fanatics.

“My love of the sport of fishing is vast,” said Landahl. “Like all of you, I want to fish every day I can. I dream about fishing, even when I am fishing. I hope my years in the fishing industry and time on the water will help produce products you find entertaining and will enhance your fishing lifestyle.”
